Santa Clara, CA July 19, 2012 Nanounity announces that their client, Mountain Scientifics, Inc. headquartered in Longmont, Colorado has just secured an order for its new QSW-Express STT-RAM wafer level prober from a leading semiconductor equipment supplier.
"The QSW platform, consisting of a patented compact high field closed-loop magnet and probe card arrangement, is the tool of choice for STT-RAM device manufacturers, and this opportunity to provide a top semiconductor equipment company is another milestone achievement for the team at Mountain Scientifics" stated Ben Cendana, Co-founder & Vice President of Nanounity’s STT-RAM & HDD Business Unit.  The QSW was released in 1999 and continues in the tradition of providing innovative and elegant solutions for the testing of advanced STT-RAM devices and Hard Disk Drive recording heads.

 

Nanounity Signs Sales & Marketing Agreement with the Industry Leading Provider of Wafer-level Probing Characterization Systems for STT-RAM devices.

Nanounity, a leading distributor of nanoscale imaging and analysis instrumentation, has signed a Sales & Marketing agreement with Mountain Scientifics Inc., the industry’s foremost provider of wafer-level probing characterization systems for STT-RAM devices and Hard Disk Drive (HDD) recording heads.

Nanounity announces the signing of a Sales & Marketing agreement with Mountain Scientifics Inc. (MSI) whereby Nanounity will promote the MSI QSW-Gen3 Quasi-Static Wafer tester product and associated accessories such as a patented magnet & probe card arrangement with In-Plane and Perpendicular Fields for the testing and characterization of STT-RAM devices and HDD recording heads.
waver tester "The requirement for early testing and characterization of STT-RAM devices and HDD recording heads is driven due in large part by the consumers demand for reliable storage systems," stated Ben Cendana, Co-founder & Vice President of Nanounity’s STT-RAM & HDD Business Unit. "In order to meet this demand, our STT-RAM and HDD customers have invested in advanced magnetic device development and expect prompt device performance feedback at the wafer level. The QSW-Gen3, initially released in 1999, is the first commercially available system and is the only tester in the market that is qualified in both STT-RAM and HDD production.  The QSW-Gen3 has gone through generations of advanced product design improvements to help our customers accelerate their development and bridge the transition to high-volume production. The large QSW install base is a testament to MSI industry leadership and we at Nanounity are excited to add the QSW-Gen3 into our magnetics product portfolio.”

Nanounity announces that the University of South Florida has purchased and successfully accepted the Topcon Aquila Compact SEM. The Aquila is a compact system that seamlessly integrates SEM with optical microscopy, and energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS). The system bridges the gap between SEM, optical microscopy and microanalysis.
The system was selected by the electron microscopy facility in the department for integrative biology. The facility provides microscopy services to all research departments at the University of South Florida, as well as companies and institutes in the greater Tampa area. The Topcon Aquila was chosen over tabletop SEMs and benchtop SEMs because of its ease-of-use, unique integration of SEM and optical microscopy, and advanced features normally found in more expensive full size SEM systems.

Topcon Aquila SEM Available from Nanounity.
The new Topcon Aquila Compact Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) is now available from Nanounity. The Aquila seamlessly integrates SEM with optical microscopy, and Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS). The Aquila bridges the gap between SEM, Optical Microscopy and Microanalysis in a compact system at low cost of ownership.

August 1, 2011 Nanounity announces that it has entered into an agreement with Topcon to distribute their Aquila Hybrid Scope in the U.S. and Canada. The Aquila is a compact scanning electron microscope (SEM) combined with an optical microscope, capable of microanalysis with energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) that brings the strength of all three techniques together in a compact design.
The Aquila is an all in one system; it’s fast, easy to use, sits right next to your desk and all you have to do is plug it into a standard electrical outlet. Notable features include 30x optical microscope, macro to micro navigation of the entire sample, motorized X, Y, tilt and rotatable stage, fully controlled by software.
With an SEM magnification range up to 50,000x, acceleration voltage range from 1kV to 20kV, and state of the art EDS detector from EDAX, the system allows you to do real microanalysis with a compact SEM. The Aquila offers truly useful functionality, optical, SEM and microanalysis, without the high cost normally associated with SEMs.
The Aquila complements Nanounity’s lines of Atomic Force Microscopes, conventional Scanning Electron Microscopes, Stylus and Optical profilometers. The company offers a comprehensive suite of imaging and analytical solutions for all budget ranges, user levels and applications.
Information about the Topcon Aquila Compact SEM is available online at http://www.nanounity.com, or by calling Nanounity at (408) 235-8888.
